What a “fossil fuel free” world would really look like

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

It's being a strange couple of weeks in the strange politics of climate change.

In Alberta, new Conservative Premier Jason Kenney has just announced that he will be turfing Notley's carbon tax, but his hiring of a pro carbon tax lobbyist named Mark Cameron to be his chief policy wonk seems incongruous with that goal.

At the federal level, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh wants to get the nation off of fossil fuelsa bizarre suggestion for the MP from Burnaby, British Columbia to make while standing at a podium in Ottawa, Ontario — Singh has a 9000 km round trip commute via airplane to work every single week!

And this wacky week wouldn't be complete without Climate Barbie chiming in:

Liberal environment Minister Catherine McKenna wants to declare a climate emergency, whatever that is. I think it's an emergency if we don't get some nice weather for this May long weekend.

Michelle Stirling from Friends of Science joined me on the show this week to cut through all the left wing fear-mongering and rhetoric. She tells us what a "fossil fuel-free" utopia would really look like and it's not good.

Simple question for the Climate Barbie types:- could ALL of the people of all of our provinces survive even one winter, like the one just past, without fossil fuels being burnt???

If the climate pushers get their way, we’ll be back in the dark ages with feudal overlords ruling over us serfs. Only the elites will have light and heat. The rest of us will have to huddle together for warmth with the domestic animals. Illness will kill most of the population with only the ruling class immune to the common illnesses killing the serf population.

- Jagmeet Singh is just trying to remind everyone that he hasn’t gone missing. Those calling for an end to fossil fuels fall into 2 categories – those who know it won’t apply to them & those who are delusional enough to think it’ll be like Gilligan’s Island. Everything about the green scams expose them as green scams for anyone who cares to look. Too many would prefer to virtue signal instead. Been a fan of Friends of Science for some time now. I suggest people check them out if they haven’t already.

Breaking News…Theresa May PM UK is going to step down early next month, before trying to pass her phony Brexit Bill.

The Leftard troll can and does talk big from its comfortable modern safe space, however that Leftard along with the vocal greenies would not last 48 hours roughing it nor would they even dare to try. They sure as heck want the rest of Canadians though to go without, just ask Suzuki himself with his mansions and outrageous carbon footprint.

Liza posted in part….”They are all frauds and we are stupid and weak minded if we swallow it.”
Stupid and weak minded, well Liza, you have described the likes of all knowing Andrew and it’s ilk.
I challenge the all knowing one to live 48 hrs without anything derived from hydrocarbons, I’ll bet this twit would not last half a day.

Britain has the answer to fossil fuel emissions, they are going to spray the atmosphere with salt water and plant trees in the oceans………????
‘Red’ Sky News.

None of what these enviro-extremists want to implement will make a lick of difference to any climate variations we may or may not be experiencing. It is a lie. What they are trying to pull is a lie. They are all frauds and we are stupid and weak minded if we swallow it.

“There seem to be a LOT of people around the Rebel that reap direct fiduciary benefits from status-quo. "

Yeah, like the entire country. The health of our economy depends on extracting and getting our resources to market. We ALL benefit from a healthy economy. How can we expect to pay for the infiltration of migrants and prop up Justin’s fav foreign countries, if we go broke on green deals that will inevitably fail? They are trying to implement a total turnaround in 12 years. It will fail.

As far as benefits from oil companies are concerned, ask the liberal and ndp governments how much they have paid TO a few of them to stop production and support the climate lie. Andrew’s comment is laughable considering all the foreign money being spent to shut down our country and keep us out of the game.

The only people who will benefit from ‘green’ are our political elites and foreign investors. Its bad for the country and they know it.

You know what a “fossil fuel free” world would look like?
It would be absolutely devoid of green hypocrites and eco-parasites – they wouldn’t survive a minute.

Who is paying these politicians? They must be pocketing a lot of money and promises to be so rabid about such a STUPID message."

Let’s ask that the other way. How many of those “triggered” by the phase out of fossil fuels are paid, directly or not, by fossil fuel companies? There seem to be a LOT of people around the Rebel that reap direct fiduciary benefits from status-quo.

That would include, of course, a lot of people that voted for Jason Kenney.

Oh oh….In my reply to Liza I wrote ‘Kate’ this should have been Elle.

Keith, my respect for Elle is growing……………………………..

Liza, I came across Kate just by accident when browsing around and I have followed her ever since. If you ever get a glimpse of her arms, they are covered in tattoo’s of the kind that a Sailor uses so perhaps she was once a Sailor. Whatever! Her comments are down to earth but they make a lot of sense.

Climate Banshee scrams “can you remember last summer”? Why should I even try to remeber last summer, when it is evident she doesn’t remember last winter?

Any moment now Andrew “Tiger” Scheer is going to stand up and call bullshit on this Catastrophic Climate Change scam.

Just wait….


He’s honest and brave….

You’ll see…….

Don’t worry kids Trudeau the pimp is probably signing away a little bit more of Canada’s sovereignty by jumping on Jacinda Arderns Christchurch Calls Tour,soon to be followed by a sweeping gun ban. What a cream puff,he looks like he’s in love with Macron while mummsey Theresa May looks on at her globalist boys!!

Thank you for a very interesting and informative interview. Michelle Stirling is a veritable wealth of information on the bogus climate change jargon being slammed into our faces daily. I will be checking out Friends of Science and passing on the good news to others.

The left wingnuts are deliberately leaving out the words … man made.. in their desperate freak out rampage fear mongering tactics.

Ruth, exactly right. From now on that is what I will call Mckenna – Climate Banshee! It fits with her stepped up rhetoric and volume increase.
commented 2019-05-15 23:27:07 -0400
Keith, my respect for Elle is growing. Her take is spot on about the sht we are in. I don’t get what she is doing personally, but I accept it and respect her right to live as she sees fit, for herself. I have no problem using the pronoun ‘she’ when referring to her. She doesn’t push it on anybody and is against pushing it onto children – is against SOGI etc.
Her take on the totalitarian take over of Canada is spot on.
She calls Jacinda (nz PM) a tranny bitch. Gotta love it.

Climate Barbie is now Climate Banshee.

Global Warming, Climate Change and Carbon Tax are all part of The Great Distraction. The western world is being manipulated into a situation that it will not be able to escape from. Look at the UK, all the dirty tricks being pulled by the British Government in it’s determination to keep the UK in the EU, it is nothing more than a comic opera, but the Government ignores the wish of the people and continues with the destruction of the UK, regardless.
In Canada Trudeau is doing a similar thing, Carbon Tax being just a part of what is in store for us. Who knows what further tricks are going to thrown at Canadians via Trudeau and the people who control him, one thing is certain though, they will not bode well for White Canadians or Black Canadians if they sympathize with Whites.
What are our choices, a Jihad or Holy War by Islam? Perhaps it will be Globalism with it’s New World Order, one leader, one law, no borders and no white race. Whites are considered undesirable because they have the ability to think logically.
Whatever kind of dark cloud heads our way, it will be evil

Jagmeet Singh says we must all get off fossil fuels.

My first reaction was … “Ok. You first.”
commented 2019-05-15 22:20:15 -0400
When are common sense Canadians gonna fight back?
We have and continue to give up so much without a fight-what gives????
commented 2019-05-15 22:18:59 -0400
Jag meet should suggest that maybe India who is a huge contributor to the global problem if there is one that they should lead by example and clean up their act first before pounding a drum over here in an attempt to crush our standard of living to his satisfaction.!!
